LOW VOTING NUMBERS AND DROPPING OUT

CHICANOS OWN TWO DUBIOUS TITLES THAT HAVE TO BE WORKED ON AS SOON AS POSSIBLE: WE VOTE IN LESS NUMBERS PROPORTIONATELY THAN ANY OTHER RAZA IN THE U.S. AND WE DROP OUT IN BIGGER NUMBERS THAN ANY OTHER RAZA. WHATS WRONG WITH THAT PICTURE? BIG NUMBERS IN DROP OUTS AND LOW NUMBERS IN THE POLLS WILL NOT TRANSLATE INTO THE POLITICAL AND ECONOMIC POWER THAT THE FUTURE COULD HOLD FOR CHICANOS. THE DROP OUT RATE AFFECTS EVERY ASPECT OF LIFE. THE DROP OUT WILL PROBABLY GET INTO LEGAL TROUBLE, HAVE KIDS THEY CANNOT SUPPORT AND IF THEY DO GET EMPLOYED THEY WILL PROBABLY EARN LESS THAN EVERYONE ELSE. YES THERE ARE DROP OUTS THAT OPEN BUSINESSES AND MAKE A LOT OF MONEY, BUT THOSE ARE THE EXCEPTIONS NOT THE RULE. THE DROP OUT IS ALSO LESS EDUCATED AND SO HE IS MORE PRONE TO BELIEVE ANY BULLSHIT THAT IS PUT IN POLIITCAL ADVERTISING AND IF HE OR SHE DOES VOTE, THEY MAY BE INFLUENCED BY BIG CORPORAT ADVERTISING THAT MAKES THEM FEEL THAT THE INTERESTS OF THE CORPORATION ARE THE SAME AS THEIRS. QUE PENDEJOS!! IF CORPORATE AND ANONYMOUS ADVERTISING TARGETS AN INDIVIDUAL POLITICIAN, LIKE OBAMA AND PELOSI WERE TARGETED, THINK! PROFITS ARE GOOD, GREED IS BAD AND IF THEY ATTACK ITS BECAUSE SOMEBODY IS TRYING TO SCALE BACK THEIR GREED. ON VOTING, IT IS A BIG RESPONSIBILITY T O VOTE, ESPECIALLY WHEN LIKE IN CALIFORNIA WE ARE THE MAJORITY POPULATION AND ARE EXPECTED TO BE THE MAJORITY POPULATION IN THE ENTIRE SOUTHWEST BEFORE VERY LONG. PARENTS, DO EVERYTHING YOU CAN TO KEEP YOUR KIDS IN SCHOOL, VOTE YOURSELVES AND TEACH CHICANITOS AND CHICANITAS THE IMPORTANCE OF SCHOOL AND VOTING. INCOMES WILL GO UP IN OUR COMMUNITIES AND SO WILL THE STANDARD OF LIVING. CHICANOS BUYING PRODUCTS AND SERVICES FROM OTHER CHICANOS. THE FIRST CHICANO PRESIDENT! ITS NAÏVE TO THINK THAT ALL CHIICANOS HAVE THE SAME INTERESTS, BUT MOST OF US DO.

I need your articles for finding low voting numbers and dropping out concepts. Everything they are issued to manage the uk bestessay writers provided news. Then everything will be good to for having great articles.

One of the main reasons that this is happening is simple but complicated. As we grow up we tend to have a good example or a bad example by someone, it could be your parents a best friend or who ever is more influential in that persons life. so if the boy/girl thats growing up with an example that his/hers parents or most influential person is a drop out parties hard and does nothing for his/hers future than this is the blue print of there life that they shall contruct because thats all they know and thats all they saw. So lets give are young chicanos good examples, it can be done! So lets examine ourselfs first and lets help ourselfs first! To help others we need to help ourselfs first.

If more Latinos where registered we would be able to pass this alot easier. I hope we wake up and register to Vote so our elected Officials can see the real numbers and if they do not voice our issues and concerns then we vote them out and vote some one in who will.

update on Dream Act vote: it passed the house but the senate vote is delayed

We have the numbers but it's our mindset. We defeat ourselves. Like a giant that doesn't know he can destroy the opponent. He rolls over and let's himself get defeated. We need to register to vote and go vote. We need to keep our kids in School and push ourselves to be better. Otherwise we can out number the other races 3 to 1 or 10 to 1 it won't matter we will always be taking orders.

CCM i'm glad that you are putting these issues out there, something certainly need to be done about this. we do not want to be known for this but it is true. we need to make changes in the home and in our schools. i myself attended a poor school in the middle of the west side and i saw first hand kids teasing their peers for being smart or doing good i also saw those same kids who were doing good actually dumb down or act out just to fit it. we need to show these young chicanos that there is a better way
